Small Groups

Jesus said, “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”

Matthew 18:20

Small Groups: being formed in Christ-likeness together for the sake of others.

At First Pres, we want everyone to be involved in each of the “Three E’s”: Encountering (worship), Equipping One Another (discipleship), and Engaging the World (mission).  Small groups are an irreplaceable way that people are equipped to follow Jesus.  A small group provides authentic and deep community in which people are encouraged to be transformed into the image of Jesus and are encouraged to live for Jesus in their everyday lives.  It’s a commitment to join a group, but it’s worth every second of time!  In fall 2022 we plan to launch three new small groups as well as start another small group leader training (see below).  If you are interested in more information about the upcoming groups or would like to know more, please contact Amy Carlan at AmyC@1stpres.com

Two New Small Groups - Starting Feb 2023

We are excited to start two new small groups in 2023.  One group will be focused on engaging in spiritual practices together and the other on serving together.  Days/times, TBD.  Please contact AmyC@1stpres.com for more information.
